Description
JonasWergeland, a successful TV documentary producer with a touch of God s gift towomen, returns one evening from the World s Fair in Seville to find his wifedead on the living room floor. What follows is a quest to find the killer,encompassing by turns a picaresque and endlessly inventive look at theconditions that have brought Wergeland to this critical juncture in life. Fromhis hair s breadth escape from a ravenous polar bear while filming in Greenlandto a near-death experience aboard a passenger ferry in the icy Baltic, the TomJones-like experiences that comprise the narrative of Wergeland s life, relayedin Kjaerstad s veneered and acutely observant prose, provide a fascinatingportrait of a media icon at the crux of his journey as an artist.
